    Hustler have a couple in Australia testing the market. Not for sale yet.

    I spoke to my dealer telling him it would be good to have when I sell my Husky 61 inch. Told him "they can only be 12k or so" as they are not for sale yet.

    There is word they could be 18-19k Thats for a 36in!!!!

    May try to buy it in 3 yrs when they stop trying to sell them in Australia

    Iíve seen it and the build quality is awesome especially the fab deck.
    Had a look at them when they first come out. Look great and a lot of benefits.

    Go speak to someone who services them and ask how many more moving parts and problems that possibly come with that!
    Like any big mower purchase buy it from a dealer you know will look after you

    Went & had a look at a Gravely zt hd today. They had a 48" on the floor, but they also do them in a 44". They are going to check availability of a 44" for me.

    Classed as residential but don't look too bad. ZT3100 transaxles, FS Kawa engine (air filter upgrade available $500). Only a 10 gauge deck, still small exit chute.

    The Gravely will be about $10.5K with Donaldson filter upgrade & mulch kit, versus about $14K for the Walker B19 42".

    Just to clarify you are talking about one of these https://www.walkermowers.com.au/
    Not one of these which is what I think I will be getting soon http://www.amazon.com.au/Aspire-Clas...97460529&psc=1
    Anything Ian says may or may not be garbage, it may also be his own opinion or it may not be his opinion at all, it may just be something he felt like stating anyone following his advice does so at their own risk and may be doing something Ian would actually advise against.
    And if you don't like what Ian has to say use the ignore function if you don't know how ask i will gladly tell you

    I've already got that one Ian. My oldtimer meds make me a bit dizzy & wobbly at times, so need it to get from ute to mower.

    I got the MB19. Mulch or side throw.

    It's a new learning curve trying to steer the thing.

    I only picked it up yesterday.

    Nothing to cut here ATM. I did 5 minutes today trying to mulch up some leaves at home but that's all. Didn't seem to have as much vacuum as I expected but I think it was set at 2.5".
    There's an annoying noise coming from a gearbox that I hope isn't anything serious.
